Making the Connection

SportsConnection is a youth development program that enables our members to explore new sports and make the transition from informal to organized play with skills-based instruction and ongoing mentorship.

Participation increases opportunities for children and youth to:

  • Access opportunities to play organized sport outside of school
  • Benefit from sport instruction and skill development
  • Engage in physical fitness
  • Increase feelings of belonging and camaraderie
  • Learn about teamwork, sportsmanship and strong work ethic while having fun in a positive environment

SportsConnection connects youth with sports at four ascending levels of commitment:

  • Exposure to a variety of sports and the development of physical literacy
  • Referrals to sports programs and support with registrations
  • Delivery of organized sport programs and hosting sports teams in partnership with community partners
  • Support to athletes with promise to play in advanced competition and leagues

The SportsConnection program is made possible through community partners such as Canadian Tire Jumpstart, Sport Manitoba, Winnipeg Minor Basketball Association, Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association, Football Manitoba, Manitoba Ball Hockey Association, St. Charles Soccer Association, Graham C. Lount Family Foundation, Coaching Manitoba, local community centres and a variety of other sports organizations.
